Drunk Alleged Rapist Cop Has Airtight 'Didn't Mean To' Defense

Michael Pena, the off duty NYPD officer charged with raping a Manhattan woman last Friday night (not to be confused with the on-duty NYPD officers charged with raping a Manhattan woman) allegedly showed a gun, pulled the woman behind an apartment building, and raped her. Police arrived and found him still in the act, drunk, with his gun and badge next to him.

He didn't mean anything by it.

His lawyers, Juan Campos and Martin B. Goldberg, said they continue investigating the allegations. But "whatever happened, there was certainly no intent on the part of Michael Pena to hurt anybody," Goldbreg said. "There was no intent to sexually abuse anybody."

GOOD DEFENSE A+ WOULD HIRE LAWYERS AGAIN. Michael Pena will be acquitted.
